Episode 105: Microtransactional slurs

Another week comes and goes and Kaz hasn’t gotten to play much between streaming and puppy. William forces himself through Fire Emblem Warriors and Kyle plays a whole slew of games: Runner 3, Super Bomberman R, Oceanhorn, and Sonic Mania Plus. In the new we talk about Nathan Fillions epic Uncharted fan film, how much space Super Smash Bros Ultimate will take on your switch, and a new $30 clicker game with NO MICROTRANSACTIONS?! We also discuss how rainbow six siege’s choice to instaban user of Slurs might spread to all games, Nintendo’s relaxed(or non-existent) approach to cheaters in Splatoon, and how one typo in coding can completely screw up a game. Come pause with us!

HYPE TRAIN *toot toot*

 

SMASH BROS RUMOR OF THE WEEK

 

Discussion:

Clicker game with no microtransactions is kicking butt in sales.

It is bad that I’m really tempted to buy it?  https://steamed.kotaku.com/clicker-game-ditches-microtransactions-becomes-steam-b-1827703881

 

Rainbow 6 Siege players who use slurs are now getting instabanned.

I love it. https://www.pcgamer.com/rainbow-six-toxicity-ban/

 

 Someone hacked the Splatoon 2 leaderboards to ask Nintendo for anti-cheat.

It got taken down, and still no anti-cheat. Think they’ll add it before we’re supposed to pay for the privilege of playing against cheaters online? https://twitter.com/Nintendeal/status/1017539297577086976

 

Aliens: Colonial Marines had its AI fixed by a modder who found a single letter typo in the game’s .ini file.

Tether, not teather. https://www.resetera.com/threads/aliens-colonial-marines-ai-fixed-by-a-single-letter.55247/
